Founded in 2015 buy Cam and Suzy Brett and when their first malts came out in 2017, I was mightily impressed. Finally, a Tassie producer has produced a malt with very careful oak handling. And you could taste the malt.
So this gentle 46% still has plenty of sweet malt and vanilla oak flavours and I agree with the distillery’s notes: warm and comforting.
Official notes read, “From a bright and sweet opening the flavours build across the palate to a rich, clean alcohol-driven crescendo culminating in a big, warm and comforting glow of spicy tannin hints and peach flesh. Long and warm with the afterglow fading into semi-sweet caramel and lingering stone-fruit tingles”.
